'Arrow' star Willa Holland talks Speedy, pull-ups and on-set injuries

25 March 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "Flash"/"Arrow" PaleyFest 2015 purple carpet tip sheet contained the usual pictures of actors and a listing by name. In the cases in which alternate identities have been revealed, those were listed as well, so it was "Oliver Queen/Arrow," "Laurel Lance/Black Canary," "Roy Harper/Arsenal." Poor Thea Queen's name was listed without an alter ego, even though Oliver's formerly bratty little sister has undergone a major change this season, going from whiny club kid to club owner/nocturnal butt-killer under the tutelage of her nefarious father Malcolm. While an assortment of random references and traits have left many "Arrow" fans figuring that Thea's emergence as Speedy was just a foregone conclusion,  nobody is willing to make that pronouncement official, including star Willa Holland. On the purple carpet, I talked with Holland about Thea's transformation this season and the guilt from Sara Lance's death that still drives her. We »

While we won't get to see Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto on the big screen as Suicide Squad until late 2016, we only have to wait a few short days before this team of super villains returns on the small screen, with Deadshot leading a new roster on this week's all-new Arrow. The CW has released 8 new photos from the upcoming episode Suicidal Tendencies. Here, we see Diggle (David Ramsey) reluctantly taking a nature walk with his crew.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 16 Review – ‘The Offer’

19 March 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jessie Robertson reviews the sixteenth episode of Arrow season 3…

Arrow returns with a perfectly fine episode designed to sort of set things back onto a course to follow for the rest of the year. When last seen, Oliver was given an “Offer” (hence the title) to become the next Ra’s al Ghul. He was given the grand tour of Nanda Parbat, given lavish food, shown the soldiers at his expense, but as he put it “Is this meant to impress me?” Obviously it didn’t. In the end, he was able to barter back through Ra’s goodwill a beaten (but living) Malcolm Merlyn and Diggle. Ra’s lays on the act of this being an opportunity, a privilege but Oliver only sees things in black and white. He is good, Ra’s is bad; it’s only until Ra’s brings up Oliver’s own murderous streak, and »

Stephen Amell says 'Arrow' will 'examine death' as Season 3 finale approaches

18 March 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Briefly killing your hero or heroine is a great way to temporarily raise stakes on a certain kind of show, but it's also a stunt you can only pull a couple times before viewers realize that probably death is only temporary.  At the "Arrow"/"The Flash" PaleyFest 2015 purple carpet on Saturday (March 14) afternoon, time was getting short and stars and producers were about to get whisked upstairs for the panel. It briefly looked like "Arrow" star Stephen Amell was going to get yanked before pausing at our HitFix paddock.  Fortunately, we at least got one question with Amell, so I asked about what death (or near-death) did for Oliver as a character and how "Arrow" is handling the stakes as the Season 3 finale approaches. [We're only at Episode 16 now, so it's not approaching that instantaneously.] "We examine death in the latter part of the season," Amell promises. You can check out the rest of Amell's answer above. And don't forget to »

'Arrow' star Katie Cassidy admits Laurel had to earn becoming Black Canary

18 March 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Katie Cassidy was cast as Laurel Lance on "Arrow" in the spring of 2012 and fans of the comic immediately went, "So she's Black Canary." It took three years, however, for Cassidy and Laurel to finally take on the mantle of Black Canary. There was a first season that pushed Laurel to emotional extremes, but not into the costume of a masked vigilante. There was a second season that included more emotional extremes, but when Black Canary was introduced, it was Laurel's sister Sara (Caity Lotz) taking on the bad guys. It's only been in Season 3 that Cassidy and Laurel have achieved their Black Canary destiny, which Cassidy calls "the coolest thing ever." "I've waited for so long for this and, honestly, I think that it was done in the right way," Cassidy told me on the PaleyFest 2015 purple carpet over the weekend. "We didn't do it too soon and I »

Arrow and The Flash Stars Reveal Their Favorite Costumes—and If They've Ever Tried on Anyone Else's!

18 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

That's a whole lot of spandex! Between Arrow and The Flash (and now another spinoff in the works!), there's been a whole lot of superhero costumes on the CW lately. The latest two entries? Ray Palmer's (Brandon Routh) Atom suit and Tom Cavanaugh's official unveiling of the Reverse Flash costume on The Flash. Both costumes join regularly seen-suits on the shows, including Stephen Amell's Arrow, Grant Gustin's Flash, Colton Haynes' Arsenal and Katie Cassidy's Black Canary, not to mention a stacked roster of baddies with their own distinct looks. And when we caught up with the stars of both shows at Paleyfest, we wanted to know if they each had a favorite superhero costume between the two »

'Arrow' Season 3: Will Oliver Become Ra's Al Ghul?

16 March 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The cast and crew of Arrow descended upon PaleyFest over the weekend, before the show returns from a brief three-week hiatus with "The Offer" on Wednesday, March 18 on The CW. The producers showed the fans a sizzle reel of upcoming episodes, where it was revealed that two more characters, Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne) will learn that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is the vigilante known as Arrow. The episode picks up after Ra's al Ghul (Matthew Nable) made an offer to Oliver to join the League of Assassins, and the sizzle reel showed Merlyn (John Barrowman) telling Oliver that anyone who survives an attack by Ra's al Ghul's blade will become Ra's al Ghul himself. Here's what Stephen Amell had to say about Ra's offer at PaleyFest.

"It's an offer in name only. It's not really an offer. It's a demand. If Oliver says no, there will be incredibly dire consequences. »

'Arrow' star Emily Bett Rickards weighs in on Felicity's Jewishness

15 March 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On Saturday (March 14) afternoon's PaleyFest 2015 purple carpet for The CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash," I was content to let a dozen other reporters ask Emily Bett Rickards about Felicity Smoak's romantic choices between Oliver Queen and Ray Palmer, about her advanced and evolving hacking skills and about whether things are becoming crowded in the Arrow Cave. For me, this was the best possible time to ask Rickards about my personal favorite part of Felicity Smoak's backstory, specifically the character's Jewishness, which has been referenced in four or five lines through two seasons, as well as through the character's menorah, which had a place of honor at her workplace desk. [If you stop to think about it, Felicity has been far more demonstrably Jewish than the characters on ABC's "The Goldbergs." I find this interesting.] I was able to chat with Rickards about her increased interest in Felicity's Jewishness, as well as the "Arrow" writer -- Beth Schwartz, if you're curious -- who has been Judaism Svengali.  And I'll have to deal with life-long regret that »

'Arrow': Stephen Amell Reveals Why You'll Be Seeing a More 'Vulnerable' Oliver Queen

14 March 2015 9:22 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Arrow is taking over Hollywood!

On a sweltering, 90-plus degree Saturday afternoon in the heart of Los Angeles, the cast and producers of The CW’s hit comic book drama treated the enthusiastic Dolby Theatre crowd on the penultimate day of PaleyFest to offer some intriguing intel on what’s to come in season three and beyond.

To say Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is in a predicament is an understatement. Following Ra’s al Ghul’s intriguing proposition to the former billionaire to take over the throne, Oliver finds himself at a crossroads: Should he go through with it? Should he politely decline? Let’s just say, there’s more to the “offer” than meets the eye.

The PaleyFest crowd was treated to a scene from the return episode “The Offer,” airing Wednesday, which showed the ever-trustful Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) advising »
